Water And Sewer Projects Moving Ahead

Jackson County has hired an engineering firm to help seek state funds for a sewage and water project. The project involves the placement of water and sewage lines on both sides of Mississippi 57 from its intersection with U.S. 90 north past Interstate 10.

County supervisors met Monday and authorized up to $32,500 to McCrory and Williams engineers to prepare application documents for the state Department of Environmental Quality. The application is due in Jackson on Oct. 1. Officials with McCrory and Williams said state loans for water projects are capped at $1.5 million each year. They also said that the amount of the state loan, if approved, would determine if the project would have to be done in stages.

Supervisors had earlier discussed installing lines on the east side of Mississippi 57, which is in the proposed Gautier annexation area. Gautier officials agreed to pick up any loan payments if the annexation, which is currently before the state Supreme Court, is approved. County officials said several business and multifamily developments are proposed for the northern part of Mississippi 57 near I-10. They said the development is pending on sewer and water service.

Supervisor Robert Norvel said the county needs to move ahead with the work and not wait on the results of the annexation issue. Supervisor John McKay, who represents the area, agreed. ``We need to take the lead, and if Gautier's annexation is approved, then Gautier can assume the notes,'' he said.
